Domestic Goddess

I’m feeling domestic this Monday evening so despite being overdressed for it, I’m doing a bit of baking in my extremely silly kitchen. I swear I’m going to put in a proper kitchen at some point but this one makes me giggle and thus, for now it stays.

How was your Monday? Mine was pretty great, despite the fact that I’m still vexed that I didn’t get the chair that matches my desk and it’s not out at the mainstore yet.

Some day. Until then, I’ll just eat these pies.

32 Chocolat

I headed over to Nutmeg to do a little shopping and wandered around the property a while. I found this trolley that has seen better days and and errant moon.

I’m wandering the grid today in search of the chair that matches my new desk and it’s apparently not out at the main store and this is my fault for not having bought it when I bought the desk. Why did I think that my 10454050 desk chairs I already own would work? Why? Because I was being cheap that’s why.

So now I must buy the chair not only because it matches but also because it matches.

I tried on one of Exile’s lovely short styles so I could show off my silly bear earrings I picked up at the SL17B birthday bash.

Brunette Gidge is liking the change. Maybe Brunette for a while? Hard to say. Gidge does like change.

Except when she doesn’t.

Corndog Safari

I’m out for adventure today and decided that I wanted some sort of Safari adventure to happen. I found an interesting build which promised animals I could ride and lots of scenery but I got stuck in how cute the landing area was and took a bunch of photos there. There is something to be said for a nice vignette, isn’t there?

I have these new shoes from Ingenue – who is my go to for all shoes – and they are perfect for exploring on a hot day! They’re sneakers! They’re sandals! They’re comfy and perfect and exactly what I needed for wandering this safari landscape today.

I also decided that the time was RIGHT for me to check out Equal 10 and honestly, that event had some great things – not sure why I don’t frequent it more? Really cute things there were going on from folks I was NOT that familiar with. One brand I am very familiar with and a fan of was ChicChica who truly makes some of my favorite foodie things on the grid. It’s fun fun – all of her food is a pretty as it is delish.

She had this corn dog for sale and I tested the demo to check it out and of course – CUTE. I forgot I had it on when I ran off to take pics. So of course, I had a corndog on safari.

Corndog by ChicChica

I mean it’s a demo corndog. But that doesn’t make it any less delicious. I’m going to have to go back and buy the set, I feel guilty being one of those bloggers who wears the demos only! We all know that’s not cool.

But, it was still delicious. Much love to Lilo for her long lasting foodie things.

As my good friend Rose mentioned – Magika is havinga 50% off sale and you need to go. All hair is rebated 50% back to you when you buy it. Her work is beautiful.

Trailer Trash

I am super intrigued by the Linden Trailers ever since I discovered they have a faux Air Stream model. I need one for a vacation home. I don’t want to live in one, I just want to visit. My friend Putrid was good enough to let me visit hers and now I’m verklempt because I want one.

They only offer them on a 514 and that’s crap for prims but still – it would be a PERFECT vacation house. Do you have a Linden house? Which one and do you like it?

Friday Night Tour Guide

On Friday night I had the distinct pleasure of taking my old friend Dancien around the grid on a tour of “the NEW SL”. Except, it’s not really NEW it’s just – “CHANGED AND UPGRADED FROM WHEN YOU LEFT SL”. I started him off with a quick run to Kittycats because even if he didn’t want their free kittycat – well I did. (He did).

If you haven’t heard, they have these kitties out, you get either a boy or a girl and they are free – one per resident. AND you don’t have to feed them. If you covet a sweet little friend for your Linden home or personal parcel, I recommend these lovelies.

Next we popped over to Dutchie so I could show him the awesome furniture including a dining set I covet that has really cool meal sequencing available. He covets the bar – so i’m going to look forward to popping over to his place and having drinks.

After that we went to 7 Emporium and picked up yard signs to offend our neighbors. HOA BE DAMNED!!

I’ve also been working on more house decorating and finally got progress on my office.

In her previous post Rose mentioned her new love of grabbing old and new things and putting them together. Honestly that’s become my jam. I love shopping and am not stopping, but there’s no reason why GREAT things from my inventory can’t come out for a spin now and then. I mean, Blueberry makes AMAZING jeans. Why wouldn’t I wear them just because they aren’t new?

i still like my Catwa head that was free. I have one quibble and that is that my ears go green on the regular. What is that about? It’s disconcerting but you still see me wearing it don’t you?

Light and Dark

The gifts at Fameshed this round are ridiculous and I’m clad in them today. This little lingerie-esque dress plus my hair were both pickups from the multitude of gifts available. Truly- I admire the generosity of their creators. More than once I grab something and then go back to buy more because I’m impressed with the style or quality. Giving good freebies says a LOT about you as a creator.

To those of you giving out chokers. Get your shit together. Especially those of you who make home furnishings and give out a choker. They’re always crap. Just stop it.

Now that I’m ranty I’d also like to say that if you give a free gift, it should be OF the sort of thing you make. If you make hair, don’t give me earrings. If you make shoes – for the love of god don’t give me a flower. You see, if you give me shoes and I’m impressed, I’m going to come back and buy shoes from you. If you give me some random ass flower -I’m not going to remember you as a shoe maker.

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

It’s a ME day today. So I’m going to let the pixel baby come home from Auntie Inventory’s house! Crazy right?

I like this round little face head.

Winter Wonderland

The Weather Outside is Frightful

I’m wandering around doing holiday things today. I found a sweet little sim with most of the things for sale. sure, they’re older and the prim count is higher on some of them but it’s still super fun.

I may go back and buy the carousel. I don’t know. Does this fit with my victorian themed house? I don’t wanna be THAT neighbor but still- CAROUSEL!

Have you done your holiday shopping? Are you ready? I am NOT. Don’t even have stockings up yet. I’m ridiculous. I just moved though is it even my fault? I don’t think so.

The snow was fun but the place was so laggy it just rezzed and unrezzed super fast. So fun but eh. Too much going on, too many scripts. YET – super fun.

With this…I’m off to finish unpacking my things. I hate setting up house!

Christmas Times Approach

Kicking off the week and apparently I’ve got the thing happening where a line shows up in my pics. Look my poor little shadow was decapitated by it. Sad. It’s been so long since I saw that I forget the dang solution.

I’ll remember it at some point.

I hope your week was amazing and that your Monday is tolerable.

Life Gets In The Way

Life has been hectic, chaos even but this Saturday evening I’m spending quality time stalking the Lucky Chairs at Alaska Metro. It’s the fault of Kitty over at Kittywichin and so you see i’m not to be blamed. I nabbed this cute skirt almost immediately and now I’m stuck here waiting for the next cool thing.

What’s a girl to do anyway?

I’ve slapped on a new SLINK Visage head and I just have to say, there’s an odd comfort in not even worrying about what something looks like. I guess that’s just decades of quality work built up. I’m not sure it’s Gidge’s face yet but I new it would be pretty and it is. I have to try on others and decide who will be Gidge. It’s anyone’s guess.

SL Is a Community

I'm Back? I Never Went Away
Ingenue’s Lisette dress comes in more colors than the rainbow. This is melon. I added Izzie’s Sheer Tights, one of the best investments ever.

I am always fascinated by how people think of and describe Second Life. Some people say it’s a game and some say a virtual form of social media. I think of it as a community center with infinite rooms for infinite communities to grow and develop. It’s like yeast, fermenting creativity and community.
